The Fallacy of Social Evolution

First of all, let me define my terms. What do I mean by social evolution? Well, it’s a close companion to the theory of evolution. It basically states that all of our social behaviors have evolved for millions of years and are still evolving. You should note that this evolution has no direction. It doesn’t understand if it’s going up or down or left or right or if it’s going round and round. It is basically a balloon full of hot air which goes wherever the wind blows. But, according to this particular theory, a few thousand years ago, someone […]

The Safest Route

He was still in his office when he heard the news. A riot had broken out in the city. Office was closing up and everyone was going to their homes. And so was our hero.

You can download the ebooks right here: PDF: 2012 epub:2012.epub (It’s a zip because wordpress wouldn’t allow epub directly for security reasons…)

Hanging by a thread
